Included Design creates inclusively designed furniture for people with dementia and other cognitive and physical impairments. The Gingko Table has been designed with just a single central table leg, thus allowing users to sit easily at the table. The steel constructed central leg and the solid steel base prevent the table from tilting, while the solid walnut edging creates a strong contrast with the table’s surface so clearly marking the table’s edge.
Tested and approved by people with dementia.
Included Design is headed by Tommy Petillo who is based in Glasgow. A product designer who studied at The Glasgow School of Art, since 2009 Petillo has worked with Alzheimer Scotland developing Dementia Circle, a project that researches, tests and shares information about domestic products for people living with dementia. For over 10 years, Petillo has also worked with the voluntary sector on delivering digital products and services for people affected by dementia. Recent projects include the development of Purple Alert, an app for missing people for those with dementia and the design of a self-assessment tool for those who need access to specific products and services in their area.
